H&S MINI MAXX DURAMAX ERROR CODES 312 & 316
When attempting to install an H&S Mini Maxx on your 07-10 Duramax and you get code 312, go to show settings & hold down bottom left key 10 seconds then a screen will pop up. Enter unlock code 0468.
Then select reset unit then go directly to install down load, do NOT re select truck and year.
Error code 316:
This code means that the tuner isn't communication with my ECM and there must be a tune on the truck or has been a tune on it in the past. Your truck will first need flashed back to stock at your local dealer before before the Mini Maxx will install.
H&S MINI MAXX UNRECOGNIZED PART NUMBER ON 6.7L POWERSTROKE
On the 2011-2015 6.7L Power Stroke, the H&S product will return to stock with your EXACT calibration that was originally on the vehicle. Because of this, and because Ford is constantly updating their calibration database (430 individual calibrations for the 11-15 6.7L Power Stroke at the time of this post), you may experience a message saying "unrecognized part number" on your H&S device. This thread serves as a solution to bypass this error message.
Here are the steps:
1. Write down the exact error that the H&S product gives you. It will look something like "DC20BMF.MM"
2. Remove the SD card from your H&S product and insert it into a computer.
3. For 2011-2012 model year trucks, open the folder "FORD67". For 2013-2014 models open "FORD13" and for 2015 choose FORD15 folder.
4. Reference your error message written down previously and note the first 4 digits of the file name. Your device is telling you that we do not recognize the particular OEM calibration that is on your vehicle. The H&S is simply looking for that exact file name on the SD card, and then tuning will proceed. Match up the first 4 digits of your error message with the first 4 digits of any other file on the SD Card. There will be MULTIPLE files that match the first 4 digits, use ANY of them.
BC20xxx = 2011 ECM
BC33xxx = 2011 TCM
CC20xxx = 2012 ECM
CC33xxx = 2012 TCM
DC20xxx = 2013 ECM
DC33xxx = 2013 TCM
EC20xxx = 2014 ECM
EC20xxx = 2014 TCM
5. Once you have selected a file that matches on the first 4 digits, make a copy of that file.
6. Paste that copy into the same directory and rename that copy as the EXACT file name that your H&S gives in the error message. For instance, if my error message stated "Unrecognized part number DC20BMF.MM", I
would rename the previously made copy of any "DC20xxx.MM" file as "DC20BMF.MM".
Once the file is correctly named on the SD card, the H&S product will allow you to proceed with tuning. If you get another error message, your TCM file is likely unrecognized also (BC33xxx, CC33xxx, DC33xxx, EC33xxx).
Proceed with the same steps above to rename a file already on the SD card to match your error message.

Custom Tuning Instructions
1.) Make sure you have a charger on the truck with good batteries (clean all terminals et) or go buy a new battery if not. Make sure no aftermarket accessories are on truck or have their fuses pulled.
2.) Plug tuner into truck, next hook tuner up to wireless internet (Wi-Fi) or turn on the hotspot on your cell phone and connect to that. The tuner will then update to the truck, this can take roughly 10 to 30 minutes. (If this update doesn't work, you will need to download the SCT update agent and update the tuner with it plugged into a computer)
3.) After that, go to custom tuning, select one of the following off-road delete tunes to install: Heavy tow, light tow, mpg/street, Race or SOTF (Switch on the fly) ONLY install SOTF if you have installed the SOTF switch beforehand. Tuner will download onto the truck, once it is 100% complete you are good to go.
4.) You can then do the tranny relearn if needed, link to that below.
Instructions for SOTF Switches can be found HERE

ANSWERS TO MOST COMMON QUESTIONS BELOW
H&S MINI MAXX | CHECK ENGINE LIGHT STILL ON
The most common issue and overlooked thing when installing the H&S Mini Maxx is thinking the tune has been installed when in fact it has not been.
If your check engine light is on after installing; 99% of the time its because you didn't not follow the on screen instructions properly. Read & Clear the Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC's). If codes and check engine light are still on; verify the tune status: Go into the Menu < Settings < Tune Status.
If tune status shows "Not Installed" go back and reinstall. It will ask if the DPF is present or DPF removed. Be sure to select DPF removed.
H&S MINI MAXX | VEHICLE SELECTION INFINITE LOOP
When installing the H&S Mini Maxx you must select your vehicle to load the proper tunes. In some instances it will continually keep asking even though you may have already selected it multiple times. This is a known issue, a rare issue, but we have seen it a handful of times. Send back the screen for warranty and we can swap it out for a new unit.
H&S MINI MAXX | YES, IT WILL FIT A 2015 POWERSTROKE
The H&S Mini Maxx will work on the 2008-2016 Ford Powerstroke Diesel. It's common knowledge the H&S Mini Maxx will work up to 2014. Rumors on forums and miss informed dealers/installers seem to think development of tunes stopped after 2014. However thats not the case. Our tuners are Fully up to date with the latest 2015 Powerstroke tunes available. See blog post on 2016 Powerstroke before purchasing for that year.
H&S MINI MAXX | WILL NOT WORK ON 2015+ DURAMAX LML
The H&S Mini Maxx will not work on a 2015 truck. For some unknown reason people purchase the Mini Maxx thinking it will work on a 2015+ GM Duramax. It will not. The Mini Maxx will only work on the 2011-2014 LML Duramax. Check your VIN before purchasing. The 10th digit will tell you the year. 2013 = D, 2014 = E, 2015 = F, 2016 = G. The pic below is the screen you will come across if attempting to install on a 2015+ model year truck.
H&S MINI MAXX | UNRECOGNIZED PART NUMBER SPRA020.MM SPARTAN TUNER
If when attempting to install an H&S Mini Maxx you come across Unrecognized Part Number "SPRAxxxx.MM" this indicated that a Spartan Tuner has been previously installed on the PCM. Spartan Tuners essentially hijack the the PCM and leave a footprint that prevents other devices from being downloaded. The truck needs to be re-flashed back to stock or "as built". Typically a diesel repair shop or dealer can take care of this using an Integrated Diagnostic System (IDS). After the PCM has been flashed back to stock as it came from the factory you can install the H&S Mini Maxx.
Mini Maxx Tuner is stuck on initializing communication
Simply press the top left button on tuner. If that does not work try unplugging and re-plugging in tuner and then retry.
H&S MINI MAXX | CRANKCASE CODE 2016 FORD POWERSTROKE DIESEL 6.7L
The H&S Mini Maxx will work on the 2008-2016 Ford Powerstroke. Some 2016 trucks are equipped with a crankcase ventilation sensor. When installing the H&S Mini Maxx this will set a check engine light & DTC. The truck will still run properly but you will have a check engine light.
DPF DELETE EXHAUST | AM I MISSING A HANGER?
Chances are your most likely not missing a exhaust hanger. A DPF Delete exhaust system is substantially lighter than the factory Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). Since the weight of the DPF no longer needs to be supported the need for a hanger is no longer required.
SCR SYSTEM DELETE
Doing a SCR system delete is one of the best things you can do to increase the life of your diesel pickup truck. Improve reliability and dependability by getting rid one of the weakest links on the Ford Powerstroke, Ram Cummins & GM Duramax. Removing the SCR will also make it so you no longer need to run Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF). The SCR and DPF are deleted together and must be done with a DPF delete capable tuner.
2015 OR 2015.5 DURAMAX LML | CHOOSE THE CORRECT EXHAUST SYSTEM
2015 was a split year for the GM Duramax. 2011-2015 the downpipe was attached the turbo-direct pipe using a v-band clamp. 2015.5-2016 the downpipe was attached using a 3 bolt flange. Before purchasing a new DPF delete exhaust system be sure to visually verify the clamp style your truck is equipped with.
RAM MEGA CAB | WHAT DELETE PIPE DO I NEED?
What DPF delete pipe do I need for my Ram Mega Cab?
The Dodge Ram Mega Cab uses the same DPF delete pipe as the short bed or crew cab long bed. Under Make Selection: Select "normal pickup"
SHIPPING DAMAGE | MAKE IT WORK VS INSURANCE CLAIM
Shipping a +80lb. box from one end of the country comes with its downsides. Sometimes the ends of exhaust pipes get bent or damaged. In most cases this can be easily fixed with a large crescent wrench. Other times it can look like a bomb exploded. If you get an exhaust system that's beyond repair, let us know and we will get it taken care of.
What’s Better, T409 or T304 Stainless Steel Exhaust Components?
It depends on where you live and what the part is being used for. When it comes to parts where appearance is important such as exterior accessories like grille guards, nerf bars and dress up trim like grilles and exhaust tips, 304 stainless is what you’ll most commonly find. 304 stainless steel has the most resistance to rust and when polished it becomes shiny like chrome. It is also the best choice for use in the harshest conditions. Any rust spots that develop can be far more easily polished away.
Making the Right Exhaust Choice
So why not choose 304 stainless for everything? One of the drawbacks is that it’s more expensive and may be overkill and not availabe for most diesel pickup trucks because 409 stainless is less expensive and easier to manufacturer. Though surface rust will appear on 409 stainless it holds up significantly longer than mild steel. For vehicles that don’t see salted roads or severe winters, 409 can be perfectly acceptable and save a few bucks to achieve equal levels of performance. Typically you see this material used in products under the vehicle like exhaust systems. Some exhaust manufacturers offer all 3 types of steel to give you multiple price points to choose from. So next time you see something labeled stainless steel, you might think twice and ask yourself just what type and what your intended use may be. The easiest way to tell which type a part is made from is by testing with a magnet: 409 stainless is magnetic and a magnet will stick to it while 304 is non magnetic. If you are unsure of what an item is made from and need more information, chat with us and we’ll be glad to help.
MISSING PART OF MY ORDER | MULTIPLE ITEMS MAY SHIP SEPARATELY
Did you order multiple items and only receive part of your order? We ship from various fulfillment centers, wholesale distributors and manufactures across the United States & Canada. In most cases the last item you receive is typically the exhaust system. We will upload tracking information ASAP. Thank you for your business!
SCR DELETE | 2013+ DODGE CUMMINS 6.7L
The Ram Cummins 6.7 is equipped with a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system. The SCR system requires the use of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF). DEF is injected into the SCR catalyst where a reduction reaction occurs, converting nitrous oxides into water and nitrogen gas. This reduces both the EGR and DPF regeneration duty cycles. When a truck is new with low mileage this system works relatively well. If your having issues with your DPF & SCR and dont want to spend thousands of dollars only to have it fail later on down the road; consider removing it completely and doing a DPF/SCR delete.
LML SCR DELETE
The 2011+ Chevy / GMC Durmax LML is equipped with a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR). Removal of the SCR is one of the best things you can do to increase the life of your diesel pickup truck. Improve reliability and dependability by getting rid one of the weakest links on the GM Duramax. Removing the SCR will also make it so you no longer need to run Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF). The SCR and DPF are deleted together and must be done with a DPF delete capable tuner.
